Skip to comments.Obama's TV Habits: 'Modern Family,' 'Homeland,' 'Boardwalk Empire'
Posted on 12/15/2011 11:05:01 AM PST by rightwingintelligentsia
One of Barack Obama's favorite shows is about a secret Muslim who runs for office with a possible eye toward harming America from within -- which is exactly what the president's more paranoid critics accuse him of being.
Obama has explained, again and again, that he isn't a Muslim and was born in the U.S. He even produced his birth certificate, partly to swat down insinuations that he's a sort of Manchurian candidate with plans to undermine the U.S. -- after establishing his cover, of course, by ordering the death of Osama bin Laden. (Never mind the idiocy of assuming anyone who's a Muslim must be out to destroy America.)
Also on the executive watchlist: ABC's "Modern Family," which he watches with daughters Sasha and Malia. (Social conservatives may note that it features two happy and well-adjusted gay parents.) "For the girls and me, 'Modern Family,' that's our favorite show," Obama tells the magazine.
First Lady Michelle Obama says the president has to watch "Homeland" and another somber show, HBO's "Boardwalk Empire," on his own. "We don't watch TV with him," she says in the joint interview.

Great, now I feel dirty watching Homeland.
Saddam Hussein didn’t care much for Bin Laden and would have killed him if he’d gotten the chance. So killing OBL proves nothing to me.
Obama doesn't really watch 'Modern Family,' 'Homeland,' or 'Boardwalk Empire'. That's just propaganda.
He is a devoted follower of and exclusively watches his own speeches...
I think Osama Bin Laden was Obama’s biggest rival. POTUS put on the Bin Laden show for one reason only - he wants to be crowned queen of the prom and Bin Laden was standing in his way. It is another “I won” moment.
Modern Family is sort of like everything that is rotting away at the culture all wrapped-up in a nice, neat little 30 minute package
I feel dirty watching Boardwalk Empire now! I LOVE the show, and I can now understand where Obama gets his ideas for corruption.
Thanks a lot, Terence Winter!
If anyone believes that Barry soetoro isn’t trying to destroy the amercan way of life from within I have some water front property in AZ you can look at.
And I bet he watches TLC’s “All-American Muslim”-—which explains Cal. State Congressman (D) Ted Lieu’s threat of legislative action against Lowes.
Is this news or another FREE campaign commercial brought to you by the media Obama xxxxxxxers? Where is the IRS and why aren’t they billing Obama for this?
I am sure Eric Holder’s favorite show is ‘Sons of Anarchy’ which is about a California motorcycle gang which runs guns (machine guns, and other heavy weapons) to a Mexican drug cartel. In the last episode of the season, the Feds are set to bust the gang for their gun running (or is it gun walking?), when the CIA steps in and says they have been part of the operation and the Mexican cartel members running the guns are actually ‘informants’ working for the US Gov’t.
One part of the gov’t involved in gun running while the other part is in the dark? Where have I heard about that? Ih Yeah, the F&F program, where everybody from Holder on down seems to claim they were in the dark about gun walking to Mexican drug cartels.
What is really interesting to me is that SOA was obviously shot long before F&F broke, but this season’s theme dovetails perfectly with our current gov’t actions. Maybe somebody from ATF was advising the SOA writers??
By ordering the assassination of Osama Bin Laden....
Well, who ordered that operation..... depends on which version of the story you believe - Obama’s, or Panetta’s. And how the operation was monitored and by whom depends on whether you believe the self-admitted staged photo the White House put out, or what the White House has said.
Whether it was actually Bin Laden they killed, we don’t know. Obama says so, but there’s no other proof than that. There was a photo that non-White House sources claimed was of the dead Bin Laden but it was discovered to be a fake.
But then, that is the standard of proof that this author accepts for Obama’s birth claims as well. He says he was born in the US and there are 2 fake BC’s on the web. That’s all we’ve got. We have proof that other claims Obama made about his life are wrong. For instance, Ann Dunham and Barack Obama Sr did not live together as husband and wife anytime after August of 1961 (since she was taking classes in Seattle and he was taking classes in HI all during that time) and may have NEVER even lived together as husband and wife. We have competing claims by Neil Abercrombie - once saying that he saw Ann and Barack with the baby at social settings in Hawaii (which is contradicted by Ann’s enrollment records in Seattle) and the other time telling Mike Evans that the first he saw of Barack Jr was when he was about 6 years old.
So all we’ve got is bluster from people who have certifiably lied to us about Obama’s life. And we’ve got obfuscating and law-breaking in multiple government agencies - par for the course from a system that has given us DHS, FBI, ATF, DOJ, AZ US Attorney, and AZ AG who have all overseen the death of a border patrol agent and lots of Mexicans by guns our government sold to the drug cartels. And then, of course, we’ve got those people lying - even to the point of perjuring themselves in Congressional testimony - to cover up what they did.
This author seems to think that skepticism about what Obama and his cronies SAY is absurd. Given the evidence, it would be absurd to NOT question whatever comes out of Obama’s mouth when his lips are moving.
“....as a three dollar bill”
I remember reading that there was some crime show episode where the details matched that of Vince Foster’s death - right down to the blood supposedly flowing uphill, which, IIRC, was how they proved that it wasn’t a suicide in the show.
I think the reason people watch crime shows is because we want to believe that that’s how law enforcement really works - that when there is irrefutable proof it results in justice.
These days, it’s sort of like whistling past the graveyeard. I think most people are beginning to realize that “justice” is a casualty of politics, and the rule of law is basically non-existent for anybody except us peons.
Oh, for goodness sakes. Obama sat in front of the refrigerator for an hour and a half before he realized it wasn’t a tv show about polar bears.
Wouldn’t be surprised!
How can the (supposed) President of the US have time to watch that much TV, while a lowly housewife like me has too many important things that come first?
Golfing, TV watching... what do we pay this guy to do anyway?
Seriously, I couldn’t understand why Ted Lieu wrote such a flagrant threat of legislative action against a private company, unless he was put up to it by someone. Ted’s a smart guy. Who would put him up to this?
Who consistently supports Muslims in the US? And arrogant enough to threaten the civil rights of citizens?
It's also a favorite of the sleazy Myth Romney as well. This is yet another example of there being not a dimes worth of difference between Hussein and his fellow traveler purporting to be a Republican.
I want proof this ain't a dude...
proof? not me, my eyes cannot unsee what I might spy under that dress.
I do not even watch these shows and I am not the leader of the free world. What a waste of time. Bet W didn’t waste time like that.
Obama knows every episode of “Glee” by heart.
Baloney! This is Obama’s favorite TV channel.
"We don't watch TV with him," she says
And the Koran teaches the good Muslim that it is permissible to lie to the infidel.
Mr. Molloy, you are a dhimmi.
At least Bush read books
He’s a puppet. He doesn’t run the country. He just needs to read the teleprompter when his orders come in.
Agreed. Muslims have been killing each other off for the top dog spot forever. Nothing new.
Homeland hasn’t even dipped its toe in the ocean yet much less jumped the shark. Snoooooooooooooze!!
I watched that show once and was disgusted.
First, I didn't think it was funny - the humor was stale and hackneyed.
And, as the article mentions, it glorifies the gay lifestyle, featuring a swishy gay couple who is raising an adopted Chinese girl. No thanks.
I bought a bootleg DVD set of "Boardwalk Empire" overseas earlier this year and did enjoy that (hey, our entertainment options are somewhat limited over there....LOL). I can see why Obambam would like it, since it has that Chicago thug aspect.
